Facebook Gaming is growing very fast as compared to other platforms in streamed hours watched in last December. It’s a warning sign for Amazon.com Inc.’s Twitch sites where a lot of people watch others play different games.

According to a report from StreamElements and Arsenal.gg. Alphabet Inc.’s:

  • The market share of Facebook Inc. channels rose to 8.5% up from all watched streaming hours last month, in December from 3.1% in December of 2018.
  • Slightly increased share was observed in Youtube Gaming as well as in Microsoft Crop.’s Mixer.

Twitch Market Share Drop last year

While according to the report, Twitch lost market share, and it increased last month its watch hours, as Twitch non-gaming content received momentum.

The Chief executive officer of StreamElement Doron Nir said, “In 2021 the Facebook will become a meaningful competitor in this category”. In a few years, they will become No. 1 or No. 2 in this category.

In 2018 the share of Twitch of watched hours dropped to 61% from 67.1% in December.

However, According to the report,  last month for the first time, a nongaming category became so popular through hour watched on Twitch. Just Chatting, having the content in the type of videos of commentary to exercise was the most trending instead of content related to games like Fortnite and League of Legends.

Nir Statement about Twitch

Nir said, “It’s more about a rise of just nongaming content, What it means for live streaming, in general, is we see the tip of the iceberg. There’s a massive amount of added categories that are going to arise and grow. Just Chatting is the most basic form.”
